Patriotic Pool Party Ideas for Memorial Day & 4th of July

With Valentine’s day right around the corner, we thought we would take a look at a few romantic pools that we absolutely fell in love with. These pools can be found at some of the most gorgeous boutique luxury hotels around the world and set the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening with the one you love.

When looking at the most romantic pools from around the world, we’re searching for a few key ingredients in how we make our selections. The first obviously is the pool itself. The privacy and ambiance that the pool environment offers in terms of setting that romantic vibe; that’s essential.

The second most important factor is location. Whether you’re traveling to a world-class destination, or simply enjoying a romantic evening in your own backyard; where you travel to in your mind when you make that connection is important. It’s probably the number one factor that homeowners choose to build their own resort-style pool in their backyard. Returning from a vacation to a beautiful resort hotel can make one yearn to reiterate that experience at home.
